Quick Review: I had been meaning to read this book since my high school economics teacher recommended it in 11th grade. Between then and now I had heard high praise for the book many times and bought it with lofty expectations. Having now read it I can say that I thoroughly enjoyed the book, it framed economics in a fun and more trivial way than I had previously known. Economics have always interested me and this “new” take further peaked my curiosity. The topics explored in the book, like the linking of abortion to crime rates, cheating among teachers and more were both interesting and unique enough to keep me engaged. For a book on economic the content was laid out and explained eloquently making it an easy read. If you are a business major, like random questions about the world, or are simply interested in economics I would definitely recommend checking this book out. I will be reading the follow up books shortly!
